I can’t believe this will be the 100th post on Holiday Helpings! I am so proud of how this blog has developed and I wanted the 100th post to be extra special. I thought the best way to celebrate this achievement was to recognize all the work that has been put into the last 99 posts. Every post has a story behind it or a special memory so I decided to highlight my 5 favorite posts.
Top 5 Favorite Posts:
The My Story post was the first post I ever wrote. The first post for any blog is the foundation and I spent hours making sure the post was perfect. I remember sitting on my sister’s couch at her apartment rewriting and rewriting until I was finally pleased with the end result. Back then I thought no one would ever see my blog, boy was I wrong!
The reason I am so fond of the Postcard Costume post is because I had so much fun wearing the costume. I remember sitting in the common room of our house painting our postcards. Maddie is an exceptional artist and painted the stunning South Africa postcard… Clare and I struggled a bit more. We made our own stamps for the back of the postcards and all decided to wear black. I had so much fun that night with my two friends and you can see how happy we are in this photo. Being a postcard for Halloween was one of my all time favorite costumes!
I love the Lemon Blossom Gift Tag post. Miki, the owner of Fresh Lemon Blossoms, was so sweet and sent me a few of her gift tags to be featured on my blog. This was one of my earlier posts and I was so grateful to have someone believe in my blog. I remember opening the package from Fresh Lemon Blossoms and showing all of my housemates how adorable and well-crafted these gift tags were. I will always have a special place in my heart and gift wrapping room for Fresh Lemon Blossom products!
I have many fond memories of the Reusable Cupcake Topper post. I remember the open market in Cape Town, South Africa where I admired all of these handmade figures. There were thousands and I carefully selected my favorite ones. When I got back home I spent all day baking cupcakes and decorating them. I was so proud of the cupcakes that I wouldn’t let anyone eat them and eventually we had to throw them away. But I kept the figures and have used them multiple times since.
The adorable couple featured in the Valentine’s Day post are related to my roommate and dear friend Emily. Emily’s sister and brother-in-law had just been married and I loved all of the photos from their wedding. I asked if I could feature them on Holiday Helpings and they agreed. I also included a poem I had written when I was much younger called “Silly Little Wish.” It was a lovely Valentine’s Day post!
Holiday Helpings wouldn’t be a success without my dedicated followers. I appreciate all of your support!July 29, 2011
